It's much more acceptable conditions now. I'm definitely for a KDE Mobile 
sprint. :-)

Well, we know about that I think. Still as you know we're a community which 
tends to tackle one battle at a time, and really Symbian is out of reach until 
we can reuse our CMake toolchain for it. The video you posted is a neat hack, 
still that's a hack and would involve maintaining two sets of build files 
(qmake + cmake), we can't really afford that upstream.

I'm in the doodle, I reported the "not already blocked dates"... now hoping 
I'll be able to make it. I'm kind of surprised I'm not seeing any of the usual 
suspects subscribed though... so cross-posting on kde-mobile to try to raise 

@ mobile people:
Guys, the proposed dates don't suit you? :-)
